I was getting more than that driving my car round the country.
Big and complex.
And presumably you don't have to take any serious decisions. A "job" for one of the old boy network no doubt.
I work for a Government Agency that has non-exec directors. As far as I can tell these tend to have experience in senior positions in private business with little direct connection to what we do. I'm not saying that such people won't have any expertise that may be of use to a Government Agency, and that may well be lacking amongst the established staff. However, I am unsure how useful that really is when their knowledge of the field is limited, at least to start with, and the ways of working between us and the businesses they have worked in may be very different.
Mnay years ago I worked at the de Beers Diamond Research Laboratories in Johannesburg. I came up with something that was put to seniuor management after it had passed through about two or three levels of interpretation. It so happened that one morning whenb I was waiting for my bus, one of the de Beers directors (who lived about 500 metres from where I was in a house-share) spotted me and offered me a lift. WHile we were on our way to the city centre, I had to explain to him in non-techical language what my theories were about. I suspect that the role being offered is for somebody to do a similar job.

Pro rata for a Monday to Friday job over a year that would be over £200,000 even taking out bank holidays and annual leave.
Second, er, I'll think of something......
What's the pension like? Can you "work" from home? Flexitime/flexileave? How much annual leave?
Pension is 10/6 per week. Yes, work only from home. Flexitime allows me to rush off to a diversion whilst also identifying developer rbts to get rid of. Annual Leave, 50 weeks plus 2 weeks Diversion Leave..... shhh:What's the pension like? Can you "work" from home? Flexitime/flexileave? How much annual leave?
No, because a quick glance at the spec tells you this job is Operation Poo Magnet to deal with all the negative PR NH generates:
The successful candidate will bring experience in a customer-facing organisation, where they will have driven understanding of customer perspectives. They will be experienced in reputation and relationship management in a complex environment. Digital transformation experience, an understanding of shaping sustainable outcomes and of driving a culture of safety in the delivery of products and services would be helpful. Candidates do not require prior non-executive experience but must understand how to operate at board level. National Highways is committed to a policy of diversity and inclusion and would welcome applications from individuals from underrepresented backgrounds.
My bold. The former is dealing with the press and me calling you incompetent, the latter is fixing the clustermuck that is smart motorway design and delivery.
You'd be mad to take this job on even at the money offered.
